An Angle of Vision book. This book highlights gendered and raced dimensions of growing up working class, poor and marginilized. Some of the essays resonated with me more and some less, but in general, I really liked this collection. Jan 05, 2015 Judy Owens rated it it was amazing. I am so proud that one of my essays was included in this volume, and happy to have taken a couple of days to re-read the essays of others.

In a sense, these stories are the travel narratives of women who have journeyed beyond their family circumstances to cross class borders, aided by educational opportunities that encouraged their literary gifts to blossom. Many of the essays reflect on the immigrant experience and struggles against the multiplying factors of poverty, gender, and ethnicity. Some authors recount their first moment of class awareness (Bich Minh Nguyen's occurred while watching Laverne and Shirley on the family's first television). Still others describe encounters in the relatively privileged world of higher education---where the subject of class is evident but mostly off-limits. Throughout An Angle of Vision the authors describe delicate balances of work and family, men and money, motherhood and sexuality. Each author reflects on the experiences that provided an opportunity to develop her own distinct identity and her own particular "angle of vision."
